President Putin has accused Ukraine of an act of terrorism after a key strategic bridge to Crimea was badly damaged by an explosion.

The Kerch bridge links Russia to the Crimean peninsula, which was seized by President Putin in 2014. Crimea is a key base for Russia’s war effort in Ukraine.

Meanwhile Ukrainian forces are consolidating their gains after recent military advances in the east of Ukraine.
